Nintendo has revealed new information about the Pokémon World Tournament gameplay mode that debuts in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 launching for the Nintendo DS family of systems later this year. In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will return to the Unova Region and embark on a brand new adventure set two years after the events of the acclaimed Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version videogames.
The new Pokémon World Tournament mode includes the following:
Compete Against Classic Gym Leaders: Enter the Pokémon World Tournament, an exciting arena where players will be able to take on Gym Leaders and Champions from previous Pokémon video games. Fans of the series will be able to battle trainers such as Lance, Champion from the Johto Region and Volkner, Gym Leader from the Sinnoh Region. Players can also use the new battle styles and moves found only in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 against these classic opponents.
Battle Format: Players will enter the Pokémon World Tournament as a part of an elimination tournament. Featured battles include single battles, double battles, triple battles and rotational battles. Using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, players can also receive data that allows them to battle with special trainers such as the top players and their teams from the 2012 Pokémon Video Game World Championships.
Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 are set to launch later this year for both Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS (playable in 2D only), and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the dual release.
